    Funny, I thought about asking if anyone had old blades that need to be re-ground that they'd be willing to part with. I'd like to take the time this year to spend time learning how it's done.

    Assuming that the temper isn't blown, that is probably salvageable.

    Restoring an old razor would probably be of interest to a good many of us.

    Hey Dave, are there any salvageable blades in that pile I left at your house?

    The grinder/dremel marks are way too deep to sand out.
    If the blade is there I will happily regrind it. Should take only a couple of minutes.

    Regrinding blades like that is not difficult. I'll show you how.

    I will bring some blades to practice restoration. These are not good blades so don't worry about ruining them.
    Main points are:
    Unpinning
    Drilling out pins
    Sanding - hours and hours of fun
    Use of corks
    Sanding sticks and diamond sticks
    Metal polish
    Making scale blanks
    Cutting scales
    Making wedges and spacers. Which one to use, compound wedges
    Thrust washers and bearings
    Pinning

    You should bring:
    Scale material. I suggest wood
    1/16 brass rod and 1/16 ID Brass tubing
    Brass washers
    Sandpaper
    Rags
    Pinning hammer. Small is good
    Anvil
    Loupe and/or magnifying glass
    Patience. Lots of patience

    PM me if you have questions
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.

    And Dave has done a fair number of regrinds, plus he has an amazing grinder. It should be good learning for those wanting to learn to restore as well as those wanting to build new. This meet is always packed full of knowledge.

    Dave'd grinder is awesome. I've have gone with a couple Bader 3's myself if shipping 100 lbs of steel wasn't rather expensive.

    I have a couple of Daves restorations and they are excellent. He is a stickler for detail and doing things correctly. (Drives me nuts! )
